The world famous artist, Pablo Picasso, once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

Like Picasso said, almost every child is a born artist. While one may sing, another may dance and yet another may paint. However, as parents, it is our duty to ensure that we tap into this artistic talent of our children and help them follow their passion. After all, so many people like Arjiit Singh, Shiamak Davar, and Leonardo Da Vinci made the best use of their respective talents and proved to be successful in their chosen professions!

In the article, Daniel also explains six strategies for unlocking kids’ talents.
